Sea food restaurant located in the center of Mexico city, the food is very fresh, very good and you don´t have to break your bank account to eat here. Many things to choose from the menu, and service was excelent.

It may be surprising, but Mexico City is the second largest Port for fish, second to only Tokyo. With that said, you may be a bit skeptical to eat raw fish here. I came to El K from a friend's recommendation and it did not...disappoint. At first sight, you'll quickly notice that this place is super clean. Even the condiments on the table are wiped clean. This is always a good sign when you're eating something like seafood. Once you sit down, they'll give you a free snack of saltine crackers with fish ceviche. We then ordered the fish tostada, the shrimp, and the crab. Everything was super fresh and delicious. My personal favorite was the fish but my girlfriend preferred the blue crab. Either way, if you love seafood, you'll need to come here for a bite.More

We ate here several times during our trip--it's that good. Well, actually we ate at the street stand location of the restaurant (and the original location), which is at the corner of Ayuntamiento and Lopez. That location was so popular--it has about 10 seats total--that...the owners opened a few other spots. Everything is good and fresh, but I love any of the ceviche tostadas!More

We came here on our food tour with Eat Mexico and this ended up being my favorite place in Mexico City. I had the tostada with fresh crab meat and it was amazing. The crab was so fresh and topped with chopped onions and cilantro...and slices of ripe avocado. It was served with lime and a selection of super spicy (and delicious) hot sauces. I've been dreaming about this since coming home. My husband got the octopus tostada which was also great. Definitely go if you're in Mexico City!More

We stopped by Marisqueria El K-Guamo for a quick snack after doing a walking tour of Centro. It was definitely a refreshing change from all the meatier tacos that we had been eating on our trip. We ended up ordering 3 shrimp tostadas and one...fish tostada. The tostadas themselves are basic but delicious topped with shrimp, avocado, and mayo (you can add more hot sauce etc. yourself). They are still reasonably cheap at around 45-50 pesos (can't remember the exact price). While we prefer the seafood tostadas at La Guerrerense, this place was a great stop if you are in the Centro area and not feeling like heavy meaty tacos!More

Although near two markets and a contemporary art center, the neighbourhood where this place sits is hardly worth a visit. So why did I get out of my way two or three times to go? Because it offers for very little an option for the...man who can eat no more tacos and enchiladas. Everything is fresh and delicious.More

This unassuming little place in downtown Mexico City is a favourite with locals and they do fantastic shrimp empanadas which they open up and stuff with avocado and mayonnaise before serving it either to eat in or take away. Great street food.

From the sidewalk the place (actually more than one place) doesn't look like much. Two long stainless steel tables. I've eaten here several times and have always had a tasty meal. The shrimp soup (caldo de camarón) is a bit spicy and good. The shrimp...cocktail(s) are also very good as well as the "campechana" cocktails with Shrimp and Octopus - a personal favorite. The young waiters are quick and attentive. Good stuff.More

fresh, beautifully flavoured street flavoured seafood at incredible prices: ate here twice and the caldo de cameron and crab tostadas were spectacular

A small place in downtown Mexico, in a rather uninteresting neighbourhood – near some artisan markets and the Image Center –. Although not confortable or especially beatiful, the food more than compensates for it: all forms of seafood – fish tacos, seafood cocktails, fries fish,...fish and guacamole fried empanadas. All of it is cheap, fresh, well made. The taste is a great change for those tired of the Mexican traditional flavors.More
